In an alternate universe called Hollywood, Anne Hathaway just can’t seem to find a good man.

Case in point: the “Dark Knight Rises” actress has signed on for a new romantic comedy entitled “The Low Self-Esteem of Lizzie Gillespie,” in which she’ll play a woman whose lack of self-confidence keeps her dating pool restricted to losers – until, that is, she’s suddenly and unexpectedly pursued by a handsome young stud.

Co-written by Mindy Kaling (whose “Mindy Project” was picked up for a full season by FOX on Monday) and Kaling’s former “Office”-mate Brent Forrester, the film is currently in search of a director. Kaling is also expected to star in a supporting role.

The news was broken by The Hollywood Reporter.

Hathaway will next be seen in Tom Hooper’s “Les Miserables,” which hits theaters on December 25.
